I agree, the USB and Ethernet ports are a waste of time.
(Can't play divx/xvid and mkv)

Overpriced for a cloudy tv.

Don't forget, you can use voucher code FWPQKFFWBR as posted by nicster08 to get another £15 off, bringing the cost down to £464.99. The code expires on the 8th I think, so be quick if you are going to go for it.

Too much cash for a 32" panel.

I don't understand why anyone would buy a FreeviewSD TV now that FreeviewHD has gone live in some areas.
Early in the new year FreeviewHD compatible TVs and set tops will be on the shelves and many will be having to buy new set top boxes to sit under their shiny new none compatible TVs.

Not everyone has Freeview yet alone Freeview+ HD and it won't be many extra channels, for now. If you want a cheap TV then its worth hanging on for Freeview+ HD sets to come out as older sets will flogged for a lower price.

Agree totally, think I should have stressed the word "now" in my post.
Both Freeview and Freesat TVs will be on clearance offers once the new varients hit the shelves.

Good deal for a W series !!!

I bought a W series 40 " sony a year ago , with freeview built in ,

I just bought a Freesat HD box , and used my old sky dish , it goes into my sony HD recorder via HDMI , and from that HDMI to my TV , yes its another box sat under my tv ,

...and if you hold out you can always get yesterdays tech at a cheaper ,

things are changing so fast tech wise, , its latest tech this week old the next ,

If you keep waiting you wouldnt end up with anything as you will be waiting for the latest tech thats arriving next week !!

Because those that are serious about HD and want the largest range of channels have SKY HD and dont need an integrated HD receiver. I got the deal 2 months ago from John Lewis. I got two 40W5710 which are the same as the 5500 for £500 each, that includes the 2 trade in TV's I got free from freecycle, so this does seem like a lot for a 32" model, great TV's though, one of the best on the market at the moment.

He's just demonstrating his ignorance. Ut's an excellent TV.

Maybe he was watching a programme about clouds.

I've got the 37" version of this, and it's the best £400 I've ever spent.
Picture quality while watching Planet Earth on BluRay is amazing.

Who cares about Freeview HD, until the main channels broadcast HD as standard. I bet majority of people wanting HD at moment will have Sky HD. I haven't even watched analogue TV or Freeview with this.
#13
Sony Bravia's are excellent. My 40" is three years old and the picture looks as good as anything I've seen elsewhere before or since.
#14
Hi Muchus, where did you get the 37'' version? I am looking for a Sony 37'' TV, but all of them are at least 470£ (the entry-level S5500).

A 1080p 100hz Sony for under £500 is a really good deal. I got my 5500V a few months ago for £430 and its amazing. Better picture quality, colour and contrast than other TV brands I've owned previously (LG, Samsung) so I definitely reckon its worth the bit of extra cash for a sony set.

Read the reviews before slagging this set's value for money. Bargain.
#16
Sony are well known for their cloudy tvs - read the reviews at What HiFi and AVForums.
Cloudy - where the backlight shines in the corners noticeable in dark scenes.

Asda had them half price at £400, within 2 days they were back up to £600, I got 1 though :thumbsup:

I got it from Asda a couple of months ago, they had them reduced from £800 to £400. It was either on here or MSE that I spotted the deal. And last month someone else was doing them for £500 I think.

Great TV. thanks
#20
Great price. I bought this TV a couple of months ago and paid £573 thought that was a good price at the time, but this is a bargain. Picture quality is outstanding, extremely good for watching Blu Ray's too!
#21
just tried to buy one, as price is very good, now 550, must grumble !!!
#22
Good job I ordered last night £464.99 with discount code :thumbsup:

Last week I bought the 37" W5500 from Sainsburys at £584.99 - and that's the best price that particular model was in a month. Great picture in my opinion.

It affects some Sony models but even then it depends on which panel/date of manufacture the set has if it is affected or not.
#27
Gee back up to £679.99 now. I really cant understand how the likes of Play and Amazon have their prices fluctuate so much from day to day.
#28
For anyone interested Sainsburys have the 37" version in store for £600. Not really a hot deal, but certainly cheaper than some places.

Hi guys :)

Just wondering if anyone bought this TV on Play's offer? We placed an order on the Monday Madness' deal for £479.99 and it hasn't moved since.

It has sat on 'Order Placed' status and is showing no signs of moving. The price of the TV has now jumped up to over £600!

We've called Play on several occassions (costing a fortune) and keep getting told that it will be despatched soon or that a supervisor will call us about it...what on earth does that mean??

We even searched the internet for Play's e-mail address ( I can't believe they don't have a way to contact them!!!) and have e-mailed several times, but no-one is replying!!

Up until now, although I have never ordered anything as big as this from Play, I have not had any problems with them....but this is so upsetting because it is now 2 weeks since we placed the order and it was supposed to be a Christmas present...not likely to arrive now :(

I'd be really grateful if anyone could let me know how they got on if they bought this TV on this offer.

Cheers

I can't believe it:? Play.com have just cancelled my order after just telling me I will recieve it in the next few days.

I am speechless at how they have treated me.

Hi Navilink, that's not good at all. From my situation I also ordered one and got one for the price you said. I had an email a few days later saying the item had been posted and to expect delivery within 3-5 business days after waiting for delivery on each of them days I finally got a phone call on the 5th day from a home delivery service to arrange a delivery day which was Friday the 18th between 11-3pm. The snow around are way was pretty bad after Thursday but I waited in all day Friday, after 3 had gone and past I tried calling the home delivery service, what a joke that is as well. At about 16.30 I finally got through and some girl who seemed like in a world of her own said there appeared to be no problem on the drivers round but called the driver to find out what was happening, after a few minutes she came back and said the driver has been told to return to base as he's had an accident with a car and his manager said it's too dangerous to carry on. My delivery went back into their system and I'm now expecting delivery again for this Wed. and touch wood I should finally have it, but I have to agree with you Play.com could explain things to people far better than what they do.
#32
Just looking back i ordered on November the 7th a minute before 22.00pm. I know when I got up the next morning the price had gone up to £550 and I thought phew that was lucky, the price after that has been as high as £679 and now today £649. Why they have to fluctuate the price so much god only knows.

I later found out that this telly is infact 8bit. It uses the S-PVA panel :) . Is anyone using theirs with the pc?? I am planning to buy this telly for use as a computer monitor and would be interested to hear your thoughts.
